Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to explore the phenomenon of physiotherapy when fathering and mothering a child with impairment. Parents of 22 young adults aged between 15 and 25 years were interviewed. A hermeneutic phenomenological analysis was carried out in several steps by alternating between individual analysis and reflection, collaborative group analysis and continued reflection. The meaning of physiotherapy could be understood by three relationships: (1) the fathers' and mothers' experiences of their relationship to the child, (2) their relationship to the physiotherapists and (3) their relationship to the physiotherapy practice. Within each relationship a variety of aspects emerged. The parents perceived themselves as needed, and perceived that the physiotherapy services did not meet the parents' needs. Fathers and mothers experienced the lack of support in different ways and physiotherapy was taken for granted by almost all parents.
